FC United's Development Fund (DF) has played a critical role in getting us this close to our dream of having our own ground.
In total, since its inception, we have raised over £500k through the Development Fund - a fantastic achievement that is a testament to the passion, dedication and generosity of FC United supporters everywhere and in particular to those stalwarts who have been part of the DF committee, guiding and steering our fundraising to these heights.
The real success of our volunteers and The DF committee has been to achieve a range of fundraising initiatives that are now part of the fabric of the club, self sustaining, and managed by our volunteer army, who have become accomplished in their own areas and with their own projects.
Now we need to push on to fund fitting and furnishing of our Moston home. Based on latest estimates we believe we need to raise a further £170k during the preparation and build period - about a year in total .This calls for us to maintain our usual fundraising and find some new ways to to increase income to the DF. Reaching this target will help us fund the build as well as the fit out of the ground and facilities.

We will also be inviting you to get involved and volunteer your skills in appropriate areas. We will announce more details in the autumn, but ahead of this it is vital that everyone helps through the existing channels.
